Doug receives a three-year, $720k NSF grant to develop microfluidics devices to study synthetic bact
The collaborative project led by Prof. Lauren Andrews at UMass-Amherst aims to engineer synthetic bacteria to neutralize toxic contaminants in drinking water. One of the CIDAR lab's goals is to design and build a high-throughput multilayer Microfluidics platform for studying and maintaining bacterial communities to analyze temporal signaling at single-cell resolution. This work is part of our Postdoc Samuel Oliveira's and our grad student Ron Zhou's research at BU.
